Welcome to Class 2 for 2020 - 2021.
In Class 2 we have Year 1 and Year 2.
Miss Cheetham is the class teacher and Miss Kenyon is our teaching assistant.
Look at what we have been learning this year
A note from Miss Cheetham… We have had such a brilliant and busy first term already and everyone thoroughly enjoyed our Great fire of London topic and our most recent 'Paws, Claws & Whiskers' topic. There has been a lot of learning taking place and every child has been working their very hardest. The children have created some fantastic Tudor homes and we have had lots of visitors to class, including a dinosaur (that left a bit of a mess in class).
In order to make the transition to cursive (joined) handwriting easier later on in school, we have moved to precursive handwriting in Year 1. This will allow the children to see where the letters join together and also allows the pencil to flow more freely without coming off the paper.
Year 2 will move onto cursive writing when they are confident with their letter joins.
We have invested in a fantastic scheme called 'Letter Join' that also gives children access at home with a class log in.
Our class is going to be using an online tool called Seesaw, it’s a secure online learning journal where children can create and upload their work to document their learning. Your child will add things like photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings to their Seesaw journal.
Seesaw journals are private and only accessible by the teacher, students, and parents.
Parent's are advised to download the CLASS APP so that children can access the activities assigned to them to complete at home. They can also upload something that they are proud of to talk about in show and tell on a Friday afternoon.
PE - PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays, delivered by the Lancashire sports partnership. All children must wear suitable clothing.
Reading— We have weekly guided reading sessions in which I listen to children read as a group, in addition, we are listening to the children individually each week, recording comments in the blue reading record. Could you also add in any comments as you listen to your child read at home. Thank you.
Year 2 will have their spellings sent home on a Friday to be tested the following Friday. Year 1 will remain learning their spellings in class alongside their daily phonics lessons.
